CT Scanner

Our Aquilion Prime 80-slice CT scanner provides faster exams at as low as achievable doses.  It produces high-quality images needed for accurate diagnoses.  Its large bore opening gives patients a more spacious feel, while a higher table weight limit expands the range of patients who can be imaged.  In addition, the Aquilion Prime includes industry-leading dose-reduction software.


3D and 4D ULTRASOUND
The  LOGIQ™ E9 ultrasound system from GE Healthcare is able to capture 3D and 4D images of organs and tissues, enabling physicians to see them from every angle.  The system also has the capability to image fetal facial characteristics.  

It is a non-invasive medical test that uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of internal body structures and organs as well as to show blood flow through vessels.  Sound waves are sent and received by a hand-held device called a transducer which is placed on the body.  The ultrasound system shortens exam times for patients and provides physicians with a wider variety of advanced applications.  A high-frequency transducer increases the resolution and detail in breast tissue and thyroid nodules, standardizing the labeling, measuring and describing of lesions and nodules in breast and thyroids.
